It is currently a work in progress and new resources are being added most days.
International publishing house ask Lewis Psychology CIC Director, Teresa Lewis, to endorse book
International publishing house Sage and authors Phil Joyce and Charlotte Sills were so impressed with Teresa's review of the first edition of 'Skills in Gestalt Counselling and Psychotherapy' that they asked her to endorse the second edition.
Skills in Gestalt Counselling & Psychotherapy, Second Edition is a practical introduction to the application of the Gestalt approach at each stage of the therapeutic process. Taking the reader through these stages, the book focuses on skills which arise out of Gestalt theory as well as those invoked by the therapeutic relationship.
As well as offering guidance on practice issues affecting counsellors such as assessment and treatment considerations, using a variety of Gestalt techniques, and developing client awareness, this fully updated edition has been expanded to represent new developments in the psychotherapy field. New material includes:
- the implications of neuroscience and psychotherapy outcome research for the therapeutic relationship
- new chapters exploring action research, disturbed and disturbing clients, and gestalt supervision and coaching
- short-term work in primary care and the NHS.
This is an ideal text for use on counselling and counselling skills courses, especially those training in Gestalt, and recommended reading for anyone who uses Gestalt skills in their work. The second edition is released in November 2009.
